The egg is added to this Cognac-based cocktail to provide an attractive head of foam on the top of the drink and to smooth out its texture. If you are worried about using a raw egg, use pasteurized eggs instead.


  • 2 ounces Cognac
  • 1 teaspoon raspberry syrup or raspberry liqueur
  • 1 teaspoon Grand Marnier
  • 2 dashes Angostura bitters
  • 2 dashes maraschino liqueur
  • 1 egg white


  1. Place all of the ingredients into a cocktail shaker and dry shake for 40 seconds.
  2. Fill the shaker with ice and then shake for an additional 40 seconds to chill.
  3. Strain the mixture into a cocktail glass and serve immediately.
